Workout 3, Week 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — by laurenvw @ 6:24 pm

I feel much better today. Today’s workout was a repeat of Day 1 workout, with a different one on Wednseday. But today instead of feeling almost immobilized by pain, I just feel the good ache of muscles that have been used. Yay! Yesterday I did the warm up when I got up, despite no workout, and I really think that helped to loosen up the muscles that had just been getting tighter and tighter. I’ve been eating MUCH healthier than I ever have before, though I do find myself getting hungry every few hours. But that’s how this is supposed to work! It means I’m burning off what I’m eating, and that I’m not grossly over eating at any particular meal.

I realized this morning that I do much prefer wandering around the gym without the workout book with me. Maybe they need to come out with “workout journals” that people can carry around the gym and look cool instead of brightly colored “Lose Weight in 2 Weeks!” covered books. Sometimes a little discretion would be very much appreciated. I am definitely hoping I can continue to remember all my exercises, though! Today I also found myself watching the form of other people as they workout. I am incurably nosy and will eavesdrop on conversations in the gym (2 guys talking about how far they got into P90X before stopping because they were satisfied with how they looked), or the girl who had a very rounded back who just seemed to be moving weights without any planned exercise. Oh, well. At least I didn’t feel intimidated about being in the weight room. Progress!
